About CommonBond

CommonBond Communities, the Midwest’s largest nonprofit provider of affordable housing with services, has served the region for over 46 years. We develop, own or manage more than 6,000 affordable rental apartments and townhomes throughout 52 cities in Minnesota, Wisconsin and Iowa. Over 10,000 people — including adults, families, older adults, and people with disabilities and other barriers — call CommonBond home. More than 2,800 of these people are children.

CommonBond is considered a national leader and innovator in the affordable housing and community development field. Our quality affordable housing, expert management, and onsite Advantage Services for residents help transform lives and provide long-term assets to the larger community.

CommonBond staff members are uniquely focused on our residents and continually monitor, measure, and adjust our services to enhance the experience of living in a CommonBond community. Employee-driven core commitments ensure that our values are more than words — they’re a standard of conduct that reflects our appreciation of the funders, partners, and community organizations that help us fulfill our mission to build stable homes, strong futures, and vibrant communities.


CommonBond Communities’ mission is to build stable homes, strong futures, and vibrant communities.


Every person has a dignified, affordable home that supports independence and advancement within a flourishing community
